Summary
Successful businessman John Silverwood and his wife, Jean, both experienced sailors, decided the time was right to give their four children a taste of thrilling life on the high seas. And indeed their journey aboard the fifty-five-foot catamaran Emerald Jane would have many extraordinary and profound moments.... Yet rather than flourishing amid the new freedoms and responsibilities thrust upon them, the children were sometimes confused, frightened, resentful. John's dream trip that began on Long Island Sound ended almost two years later as a nightmare in treacherous waters off a remote atoll in French Polynesia, where, in an explosion of awesome violence, the terrifying brunt of the ocean's anger fell upon the Emerald Jane.--From publisher description
Summary
When Californians John Silverwood and his wife Jean decided to take their four children on a sail around the world on their fifty-five-foot catamaran, Emerald Jane, they could not foresee the range of adventure that awaited them. The pressures of a family and a marriage in such cramped quarters were nothing compared to the terrifying forces of nature. But while in the South Pacific, just as it seemed to them that they had mastered every challenge, their world was shattered in a split second of unimaginable horror. Now the real test began, forcing them to fight for their very lives
